Hudson Valley Writers Center presents Craft Class with Tyree Daye via Zoom at 10:30 am – 2:30 pm.
From the organizers:
“The poet Vievee Francis introduced the concept of entering “the cave of one’s self” during my grad school years at North Carolina State University,” Tyree explains. “Vievee encouraged me to explore my narrative, to investigate my symbols, and to break them open and to look inside of them. My narrative is that I’m black, southern, raised by a single mother. Knowing my narrative helps me understand why tobacco fields and dirt roads show up in my poems. By identifying and exploring my symbols, I can begin to telescope inside them, making the language I use to speak about them fresh, and discover why these symbols were given to me. I believe our images come from God and are our egoless souls trying to make us see our connection to the world. In our workshop, I will ask students to enter “the cave of one’s self” through several writing exercises.”
